PREVENTING INJURY IN THE WINTER

Brrrr… it’s COLD out there! Winter has well and truly set in and we are more at risk of injury than we were in summer. Dance Informa consulted leading dance physio Lisa Howell, of Perfect Form Physiotherapy, to find out the best ways to stay healthy and strong during the cold months.


What is the best way to warm up for class?

This really depends on what type of class you are doing. Your warm-up should always be class-specific and take into account what state your body is in on that particular day. If you have just been sitting in school classes for the last couple of hours, you’ll need to do a lot more mobilizing exercises in your warm up than you would if you have just come straight from another dance class, or walked half an hour to the studio.
